Old Speckled Hen Review

Old Speckled Hen

English Pale Ale

Rating: B+

Poured from bottle to pint glass.

Orangey copper in color.  Small-bubbled, white, foamy head diminishes quickly.  Very mild aroma.  Medium body and buttery on the tip of the tongue.  Seems slightly less carbonated out of the bottle.  Taste is earthy, piney, a bit toasty; there are slight hints of citrus, champagne and biscuit.  The flavor is surprisingly strong and complex considering the lack of aroma.  Very drinkable.

    Liked your review so much that I went to your fridge and drank your last one.
